“Good Decent Foods”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Today is the 2nd time I'd gone to this restaurant. For the price, I will consider the food good. I had the seafood spaghetti the last time and this time, the tuna.. Both were of good portion and tasty. I ordered a fruit salad too, for Rmb 10.00. Nice & generous portion. Service is fast & polite. Environment clean & airy .. What else can one ask for, for the economical prices you will be paying for ?

“Good for a quick lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2012

I am going almost every days to the restaurant near the Shanghai Train Station. It is perhaps not the best quality, but good enough as a canteen. Furthermore it is very cheap. If you want to grab a quick bite, go there and take a duck salad.

“Very Good Italian Food on a Budget”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

Saizeriya is a great chain restaurant where you can take the family even if you need to be frugal. The restaurant has adopted itself to the local palate of Shanghai. The spicy pasta really only has a slight zing to it. They serve a mini fried rice if you don't like Italian.

The atmosphere is nice with plenty of seating, lots of booths and plenty of overflow if you have a large party. The service is spot on prompt and polite. The food is good and the portions are adequate. The key though and the thing that keeps me coming back over and over again is the variety. The menu has so many different things to choose from. From escargot to pasta, pizza to steak, Jambalaya to sausage, risotto to salad, clams to squid, garlic bread and a number of desert dishes.

Now if you are looking for 100% authentic Italian food, this is not the right place for you. But if you are looking for a great place, with a lot of variety, where you can take the kids or have a quiet meal with your significant other at a great value---then this is the right place to go for you. The drinks are refillable if you buy that option, the food is good and the pasta does taste pretty good. The pizza is passable, but everything else on the menu is a treat to eat.

So grab the kids, your sweetheart or colleagues and bring your appetite and enjoy!
